Paragliding in Nepal is an exciting and relatively new adventure activity in the region, offering an exhilarating experience for adventure enthusiasts. This form of flying allows participants to soar through the skies using the natural elements and warm air currents, providing the opportunity to stay airborne for extended periods and cover significant distances. With a compact, lightweight aircraft that fits conveniently into a rucksack, weighing approximately 10kg, you can revel in the extreme scenic beauty of Nepal, sharing airspace with griffin vultures, eagles, and kites. Glide gracefully over picturesque villages, monasteries, temples, pristine lakes, and lush jungles, all while enjoying breathtaking views of the majestic Himalayas.
Building upon the skills acquired during the Thermal Ling course, paragliding enthusiasts transition to ridge-soaring and shift their focus toward thermal flying, aiming for cross-country flights. The challenge and adventure of navigating unfamiliar terrain are unparalleled. However, mountain flying demands advanced flying techniques. This comprehensive 3-day course is designed to introduce participants to mountain flying, emphasizing the essential skills and decision-making required for successful thermal flying in the expansive open skies away from the familiar ridge environment.
Paragliding opportunities in Nepal are contingent upon weather conditions, primarily from November to February, with the ideal months being November and December. The premier destination for paragliding in Nepal is the Annapurna region, specifically the Pokhara Valley. The valley's microclimate offers ideal flying conditions, characterized by excellent stability compared to the Kathmandu Valley, located 150km to the east. While paragliding is also conducted in the Mahabharat range, most activities take place in the picturesque town of Pokhara, nestled at the foot of the Annapurna Himalayas. The starting point for your flight adventure is Sarangkot (1592m), offering mesmerizing vistas of Fewa Lake, where the first rays of sunrise and the warm hues of sunset create a captivating spectacle. Whether you're a novice or an experienced paraglider, our qualified pilots provide thorough pre-launch briefings to ensure your safety and enjoyment.
